• Upholstery Cleaning Tips for Homeowners


    Do you dread upholstery cleaning but fret about stains and spills? Instead of letting it be a nightmare, follow some simple upholstery cleaning tips you can use between professional cleanings.

    Tip #1: The Vacuum Is Your Couch’s Friend

    The vacuum isn't just for carpets and rugs. It's also an excellent way to keep your upholstery clean. Pet hair, dander, dust, and other dirt can work its way down into the fibers of the fabric. Not only do they make your furniture look dirty and dingy, but they can take a toll on the fabric, causing it to break down and weaken.

    One way to combat this is with regular vacuuming. When you clean the floor, use the handheld attachment and vacuum your upholstered furniture too. It can help keep the dust and dirt out of the upholstery.

    Tip #2: Treat Stains and Spills Quickly

    If there is a spill or spot on your furniture, don’t sit on it and wait for it to go away. Treat stains and spills quickly, as soon as they happen. Use a soft, white cloth to soak up any liquid and a clean cloth and gentle detergent to clean it. A good choice is a vinegar and water solution. It can help clean the spot and is a natural disinfectant as well.

    Tip #3: Don’t Neglect Professional Cleaning

    Regular maintenance is essential to keep your upholstery clean, but nothing is better than regular professional cleaning. Just like your carpets need cleaning at least once a year, so does your furniture. It will keep it looking like new and extend its life.
